Becky Lynch Reacts To Ronda Rousey’s WrestleMania Challenge

Becky Lynch Ronda Rousey

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has reacted to Ronda Rousey’s decision to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38.

Ronda Rousey stunned the wrestling world when she made her return to WWE as part of the women’s Royal Rumble match. Entering at number 28, Rousey eliminated four women on her way to winning the match, guaranteeing herself another WrestleMania main event.

Back in 2019, Rousey headlined WrestleMania 35 alongside Flair and Lynch and as fate would have it those are the two women that the former UFC Champion had to choose for her title match at WrestleMania 38.

On SmackDown, Ronda Rousey made her choice as she told Charlotte Flair that she was challenging her for the SmackDown Women’s Championship on The Grandest Stage Of Them All.

Now Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has responded on social media to Rousey’s decision, alluding to her previous comments urging Rousey to go for an “appetizer” rather than “steak and potatoes:”

“Smart choice, Ronnie. Go for the gazpacho.”

Reports have suggested that an eventual one-on-one showdown between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey are in the works but don’t expect it any time soon. Rousey and Lynch are currently slated to face each other at WrestleMania 39 in 2023 with WWE icon The Rock also being considered for a match as WrestleMania goes Hollywood.
